Patriot's Day is a holiday that celebrates local heroes. The holiday was originally created to commemorate the revolutionary heroes of Lexington and Concord. However, following the tragic marathon bombings in 2013, this day also serves as a reminder of the strength, talents, and resilience of local people in and around Boston. This month, we will celebrate Patriot's Day by learning about some of Boston's musical heroes: composers who lived and/or worked in Boston. We can trace Boston's musical history all the way back to colonial times and it is still going strong today! Happy Patriot's Day and Happy Listening!
